Two Ergon Energy engineers have been awarded Fellowships from their peak industry body Engineers Australia in recognition of their leadership and contributions to the profession.
The honour, usually only bestowed upon engineers in the later years of their working life, went to manager network strategy and policy Blake Harvey, 32, from Rockhampton, and principal engineer technology innovation Dr David Ingram, 42, from Brisbane.
The Fellowships recognise a significant career achievement for the pair. Mr Harvey is one of the youngest to receive the high honour and comes after recently serving as the Queensland President of Engineers Australia.
“It’s nice to receive recognition from the engineering profession after many years of study and work,” Mr Ingram said.
“Fellowship will help me promote Ergon’s technical capability, particularly when dealing with external suppliers and research institutions.”
